Fourteen teams came out to play in TJ’s 10-week in house summer league at TJ’s Classic Billiards in Waterville Maine. It all came down to a four team playoff for the $4000 money week prize fund (the largest prize fund in Tj’s League history). The “5 Olives” were the favorites going in, having the MVP on their team, Bobby Dennis. They wound up just barely beating the Wild Card team, “Blind Squirells” by only one game sending them to the consellation match for 3rd or 4th place. In the meantime, new comers “Smooth Strokers” easily defeated veteran team “The Cutters” to give them a chance at the “5 Olives” to play for the coveted trophy and $1750 first place cash prize. The final match of the night was a back and forth battle with many lead changes. Eventually ending with the “Smooth Strokers” on top. TJ’s staff would like to thank the 70 pool players for making the summer league such a great success and we hope to see everyone for the Fall League starting Monday October 4th.

Two Great Trick Shots By: Bob Jewett

San Francisco Billiard Academy www.sfbilliards.com Here are two trick shots to make the 8 and the 9 in side pocket A. I call them great because unlike some trick shots, there are things to be learned from them that you can use in games. Also, they are truly amazing when they go, which is most of the time if you have practiced them. Bob Jewett For the 9 ball shot -- the goal is to make the 9 in pocket A -- both the 9 and the cue ball are frozen to the cushion and to each other. They really need to be frozen or the shot will be either inconsistent or impossible. One technique for encouraging balky balls to stay frozen is to tap them into place with another ball. If you aim at about the point indicated, which is the edge of the metal fitting for the side pocket on the other side and shoot firmly, the 9 will move relatively slowly down the rail while the cue ball zips across one rail to hit it just as it passes the side pocket. The main thing to learn from this shot is how adjustments can be used to modify parts of the shot. The more you shoot into the B C nine ball, the faster it will move down the table relative to the cue ball speed. If the nine ball is short of the side pocket when the cue Side pocket shots ball returns, you need to give it more speed, so you need to shoot into it fuller. Choose an aiming 9 point closer to the middle of the side pocket -- not a lot closer, try Aiming point a half-inch at a time. A As you take an aiming point to the left or right to get less or more speed on the 9, the path of the cue ball will also change. 3 5 To adjust it to come to the side 6 8 7 2 4 pocket, use a little left or right English to change the angle off the far cushion. With these two controls -- and with careful setup -- you can expect to make the ball over half the time. Remember to hit the ball firmly as it keeps the timing more consistent; the 9 should be moving at a good pace when it’s struck by the cue ball the second time. The exact distance of the two balls from the side pocket is not too important, but you will have to change the aiming point and English slightly as you move away from the side. The shot can be made with nearly the same line three diamonds from the side. The shot to make the 8 ball in the side I first saw done by the exhibition player Jack White in the 1960s but it dates back at least 70 years. It’s called The Rosebud. The 8 is on the spot with the 6 and 7 straight across. The other four balls are placed touching the 6 and 7 and lined up with the 6 and 7 to the far corner pockets, B and C. For example, the 5-7 line points to pocket B. The proposition is to make the 8 in any of the four pockets on that end of the table, which you can let the audience pick before you place the cue ball. If pocket A is chosen, place the cue ball as shown in line with the 2-8-5 line, and shoot the 2 straight at the 8. Do you see what happens to let the 8 go in side A? The entire shot is based on tangent lines from ball collisions. The 8 ball last hits the 5 ball -- I’ll leave it for you to figure out where the other balls have gone during the lightningfast sequence of collisions. I’ll also leave it to you to figure out where to put the cue ball for the other three pockets. Have fun. REJ

Even More Practice to Make Perfect By Samm Diep, PoolTipJar.com © October 2010

I’ve always been told that it takes 21 days to form a habit. If there’s something you want to learn or a behavior you’d like to develop, give it 21 solid days and it should become second nature by then. New information tells us to throw that number out the window. Recent studies by the Medical Research Council indicate the new magic number is 66. Their research has shown that it actually takes us Samm Diep more than three times as long to learn to do something automatically. According to Professor Jane Wardle, of University College London, “What we found was that it takes 66 days on average for people in our study to acquire a habit.” Though the studies varied between individuals, they were able to determine that if you do something every day for 66 days, in the same situation, it will become automatic. Also, “performing an action for the first time requires planning, even if plans are formed only moments before the action is performed, and attention. As behaviors are repeated in consistent settings they then begin to proceed more efficiently and with less thought as control of the behavior transfers to cues in the environment that activate an automatic response - a habit.” What does this mean for pool? Well, depending on what your personal goals are, you may want to consider this information the next time you decide to take the day off from practice. If you’re a beginner, learning a new shot, or changing your mechanics and you do not have 66 straight days to spare in the pool room, it will now take even longer to learn this game. If you’re only committing 2-3 days a week to your training, it could take in excess of six months before changes become automatic to you. And who has that kind of time and patience? If regular practice wasn’t important enough before, we are now reminded of just how detrimental the lack of it can be to our progress. An hour a day keeps the misses away. Even if you only have an hour or less, put in the time and continue to develop that muscle memory.

BLONDE CHALLENGE #2

by Renee’ La Viness Q-Spot Billiards - Tulsa, OK

On Saturday, September 25th, 2010, while everyone else was shopping, mowing lawns, etc., the real fun was happening at Q-Spot Billiards in Tulsa, OK. Shortly after 2:00 pm, Gene La Viness (of Crown Cues) and Gene La Viness Josh Smallwood began a 9 ball race to 7 ahead. The video camera was filming the match which was broadcast live, online. The loser of this match would have to become a blonde for at least two weeks. It was decided they would alternate breaks. Gene won the Josh Smallwood lag and the games began! Gene won the first two games, then Josh won three, then Gene won two... The match carried on in this manner for ALMOST ELEVEN HOURS and 147 GAMES!! The guys only ate during play and refused to stop for a lunch break, or to get some fresh air, call home or rest. The only breaks taken were during the few five to ten minute periods while the computer was rebooted for the live stream. Everyone knew Gene and Josh must be enduring a great deal of pain to continue the match so long, but nobody was giving up and signs of weakness were only evident in the ease of irritation when someone interfered or an easy shot was missed. Even the irritation was fairly well controlled, though. Both men were extremely dedicated to their match and kept a positive attitude throughout the day. They took whatever time was necessary to make the shot at hand and seldom gave up position to the opponent. It didn’t take a rocket scientist to determine the two were very well matched for this particular competition and fatigue might be the only factor which would allow a winner. The area around the table was rather quiet, although the rest of the room was often rolling with laughter, frustration, pride... typical sounds from a family pool Blonde for at least 2 weeks!! hall. Some were there to watch the match, but played at other tables and only checked in once in a while to avoid disrupting the focus of the players. Although the room was full of sounds, it is doubtful that even the loud jukebox was heard by either of them, when it was played. Some viewers watched the match on their computers from Mississippi, Ohio, Texas, Pennsylvania... Some of the more dedicated ones stayed throughout the day. In the middle of the night, at almost 1:00 am, a winner finally prevailed! Josh Smallwood would remain a brunette, while Gene La Viness was to become a blonde for at least 2 weeks!! Congratulations to Josh for a well-deserved win! This fun event was sponsored by Q-Spot Billiards of Tulsa, Crown Cues, and D’oro Pizza. Each of the sponsors contributed multiple door prizes for the event, as well as offering great support for the players. If you missed the match, it is online at http://ustream.tv/channel/tulsa-qspot

Mike Dechaine was no doubt playing the best he has all season on the Pro Tour. After his huge victory over Mike Segil, Dechaine seemed to be on a roll and could not be stopped. With the all the spectators buzzing over Dechaine ending the streak by Mike Sigel, Dechaine took this opportunity to make a bigger statement. He began the match against Deuel on fire, taking an early 4-1 lead. Dechaine miscued while hitting the 5 ball, sending the cue right into the commentators booth. Dechaine seemed like he was about to send his cue flying even further. Known for his fiery attitude, this could have been a turning point in the match that would allow Deuel to post a comeback. Deuel did win the next two racks to bring the score to 4-3, but Dechaine kept his composure and finished off Deuel 8-4 to become the king of the hill. Deuel would visit the one loss side to play Josh Brothers for a chance to play Dechaine for the championship. Brothers - who had also been sent to the one loss side by Dechaine (8-6) - was out for revenge if he got the chance to see Dechaine in the finals. Deuel would be the one who would get his opportunity at revenge as he would defeat Brothers 8-5. The championship match between Mike Dechaine and Corey Deuel would go very similar to their first match – up. Dechaine jumped out to an early lead, placing Deuel in a tight spot to attempt a comeback. Dechaine would miss a few easy shots that would get him a bit rattled, but through it all Dechaine kept focused and come away as the new Seminole Pro

This puts seven tour stops in the books for the year with seven different winners. The one bright spot for Deuel was that with his second place finish, he earned 125 Player of the Year points and would be the leader after the weekend, enjoying a very comfortable 80-point lead over Stevie Moore. We would like to thank Holden Chin, owner of Raxx Pool Room, and the entire staff for being wonderful hosts for this event. We would also like to thank Tony Robles and the Predator Tour for their partnership in bringing this event together.

Product Review Magic Ball Rack Delta-13 Case by: Don "Cheese" Akerlow I recently had the opportunity to use the Magic Ball Rack first hand and test it against the use of a regular rack. I was pleased and surprised at how well it held the ball, ease of use and that it didn’t have to be taken off of the table before the break. I did have some concerns however and made up a list of questions. Here are my questions and responses about the Magic Ball Rack. Try it out yourself and see what you think. I know you’ll like it. 1) How, when and where did you get interested in the game of pool or billiards? I had always had an interest in cue sports but I was really in my teens where I really caught the bug. I used to go play every Saturday afternoon with a school friend, we were not very good but we enjoyed playing. I started playing 8 ball but after a while progressed to 9 ball, lucky for me that pool started to become very popular in the UK and more players converted to 9ball. That was over 12 years ago now. 2) What inspired you to design a rack and why? I had always found that in pool you could buy a nice production or custom cue, buy good quality balls and even tables. But it was near to impossible to buy a rack that would rack the balls 100% touching everytime. So I thought I could design a rack which would fill this gap in the market and add a level of consistency to the game of billiards. 3) How did you come up with this design when everybody else removes the rack from the table? I looked at nearly all the other triangles and devices on the market, some were great and some were not so great, but from my study I had identified it doesn’t matter how good or precise the rack is! It’s the cloth, which will make the difference. Eg, Sometimes the 1ball just won’t stick or the wingball just moves slightly when you remove the rack. So I looked at designing a rack at the cloth level not above the table like all the other predecessors. I brought a sardo rack many years ago and found that to work quite well, I remembered that it suggested that you tap the table 1st to train the cloth. From this I was able to design Magic Ball Rack, a rack which sits at cloth level and will hold the balls and can be removed after the break. 4) What are the advantages and disadvantages of the Magic Ball Rack? I think the advantages of the Magic Ball Rack are: · Consistent rack every time · Quick and easy to use · Eliminates cloth wear around the racking area · Will give a perfect rack on new and old cloth · No need to tap tables I think the disadvantages are: · If a ball is rolling very slowly over the rack after the break it could change the angle of the ball. However, this is at very slow speeds. · Sometimes a ball will rest back on top of the rack after the break. Overall I would say that Magic Ball Rack fixes more problems than it does cause. 5) How long do they typically last? The racks last between 6-9 months of everyday use. The racks are made from a tough grade film which is strong and durable, they will not crack or chip. I would recommend that you do not bend the rack as this can impair the performance of the rack. 6) Cost? The cost of the Magic Ball Rack is · 9&10 Ball (2 racks per pack) USD$10 · 8 Ball (1 rack per pack) USD$10 7) Where can you find the Magic Ball Rack? Magic Ball Rack is available through various vendors across the US and Worldwide. You can go to http:// www.magicballrack.com/dealers.html 8) If somebody is looking to becoming a dealer for you, what do they do? I am happy to talk to any people looking to become a dealer, I am also interested in working directly with poolhall owners directly. They can contact me directly at info@magicballrack.com

1ST ANNUAL REVEREND CLARENCE KEATON MEMORIAL Daniel Dagotdot Wins the Amateur Event/Jeremy Sossei Takes the Pro 10-ball

Open/Pro Event L-R, 2nd Place: Tony Robles, 3rd Place: Sean Morgan and 1st Place Winner: Jeremy Sossei

Approx 6� long

By Alison M. Fischer, NYCgrind.com On September 11-12, Tony Robles spearheaded the $1,000, added 1st Annual Reverend Clarence Keaton Memorial Tournament, as the 14th stop on the Ozone Billiards Predator Tour 2010 season. Reverend Clarence Keaton, known as "The Rev" by many players, frequented Master Billiards (where the memorial event was held), along with many other New York pool rooms. Well-loved by many members of the pool community, Reverend Clarence Keaton lost his battle against cancer last year. Reverend Keaton was a close friend of tour founder Tony Robles, and would regularly drive to the US Open and The Super Billiards Expo with Tony and his son Shawn Keaton, who is one of New York's top emerging talents. Along with Shawn, a number of other up-and-coming players competed in the A/B/C/D 9-ball event in this memorial, including John Alicea, Noel Bensurto, Daniel Dagatdot, Jerry Tarantola, Mike Panzerella, and Stewart Warnock. In total, 70 of New York's top players came out to help memorialize "The Rev's" presence and influence on pool in NYC. The story of the Amateur event of the Ozone Billiards Predator Tour 9-ball championships was centered around the transition of Daniel Dagotdot from a B player to an A player. Daniel has been playing progressively stronger, and building confidence in his game and tournament play. This up-and-coming Fil-Am pool player has been impressive in a combination of dominant and clutch wins, helping him pull all of the pieces of his game together in

ABCD Event L-R 2nd Place: Andrew Kane, 3rd Place: Arturo Reyes & 1st Place Winner Daniel Dagotdot

a way that is a threat to any pool player in the NY landscape. Daniel went through the field undefeated with wins over Tony Liang 7-5, Ed Culhane 7-4, John Alicea 7-4, Alex Gilvarg 7-4, Steve Wright 7-2, and ultimately Andrew Kane 7-4. Andrew Kane bounced back with a "W" over Arturo Reyes 7-5, giving him the re-match opportunity. In the final match, Daniel capped off an impressive tournament with a dominant performance, which led to a dominant 7-2 win for his first Ozone Billiards Predator Tour 9-ball win. In July's tour stop at Amsterdam Billiards, Daniel had finished second to John Alicea in the finals, and showed the field in this event that his close loss in the finals fueled him to take his game to the next level. Other stand-out players in this event were Gail Glazebrook, who won a total of four matches, but lost one round before the money, along with Arturo Reyes and Steve Wright, who both showcased heart and explosive play. Kicking off late Saturday

afternoon, the Open/Pro 10-ball event featured top-level talent such as Hunter Lombardo, Holden Chin, Jeremy Sossei, George Sansouci, Mike Miller, Sean Morgan and Zion Zvi. Top NY female player "Snooky" Diana Rojas showed a lot of heart to tangle with the big boys in this event as well. Top Florida pro player Hunter Lombardo stayed around NY long enough after the Seminole Empire State 10-Ball Championships to participate in this 10-ball event. Hunter opened with an impressive 8-3 win over Holden Chin, as well as a clutch hill-hill victory over Mhet Vergara, before losing to Tony Robles 8-6 and Ginky 8-5. Tony Robles brought his "A" game, and was determined to honor his late friend Clarence Keaton by showing the heart that "The Rev", as he is known by his friends, always brought to the table. Tony defeated Phil Davis 8-5, Jeremy Sossei 8-6, Hunter Lombardo 8-6, and "Alaska" Sean Morgan 8-3‌ earning a spot in continued on page 13

DUKICH GOES UNDEFEATED Valerie Dukich went undefeated to win her first Tiger Bay Area Amateur Tour (BAAT) tournament at Stix Billiards in St. Pete Beach, FL on August 21st. Dukich topped the field of 21 players in the $420-added event. The tour welcomed newcomer Sandra Titone and welcomed back a few players to the event held at the “room with a view!” Windows at Stix look out over the intercoastal waterway in St. Pete Beach, offering a beautiful respite while waiting for a match. One player commented that she’d been playing pool for many years, but this was the first time she’d seen dolphins from inside a pool room! The one-loss side final four matches featured Melissa Morlan vs. Kelly Cavanaugh and Chris Fields vs. Tour Director Stephanie Mitchell. Morlan, who had returned to the tour after a several-months break, was fighting her way through the one-loss side following a first round loss to Dukich. Cavanaugh, who has made her mark on the tour this year with two 2nd place finishes, also had been sent west by Dukich. Morlan came out of her corner fighting, and won all three games of 8-ball, one game of 9-ball and reached the hill before allowing Cavanaugh to take a game. Morlan closed the door on Cavanaugh, winning the match 5-1. Meanwhile, Fields, who joined the tour last month making a statement with her 3rd place finish, was battling against Mitchell. Mitchell was making her way through the one-loss side, overcoming a second round loss to Cavanaugh. Like Morlan, Mitchell came out swinging and won the first three of four 8-ball games, then won two games and reached the hill in 9-ball. Fields won the next game, making the match 5-2. Fields now needed two games to win the match in the handicapped format, but it wasn’t to be. Mitchell finished off the last game, winning the match 6-2 and advancing to the next round. For their 7th place finishes, Cavanaugh and Fields won prize packages of gifts generously provided by our sponsors. In the next one-loss round, Morlan matched up against Lana Loomis, who had arrived on the one-loss side, thanks to a defeat by Sabra MacArthur Beahn. The opponents traded groups of three wins, with Morlan taking the first three games of 9-ball, Loomis the next three, then

Morlan the third three, which were games of 8-ball. The match was now hill-hill in the 7-4 race with one game of 8-ball left. Loomis sank the final 8-ball, winning the match with a score of 4-6. The other match of the round was between Mitchell and Christine Brenner, who had also been victimized and sent to the one-loss side by Dukich. The score see-sawed in the 7-4 race. Both players reached the hill before Mitchell fired in the final ball and won the match 7-3. For their 5th place finishes, Morlan and Brenner took home $60. The quarter-final match featured Loomis and Mitchell. Mitchell kicked into gear, winning four games of 8-ball, then three games of 9-ball, and reached the hill. Loomis won the next game and was launching a comeback, needing three more games. But Mitchell was on a roll and foiled her attempts, winning the final game and the match with a score of 8-1. Loomis claimed $100 for 4th place. Congratulations to Brenner (5th) and Loomis (4th)! Each has played in several BAAT tournaments, including the first one ever held in January 2008. They both have previous best finishes of 9th place and both finished in the money today for the first time! The semi-final match featured Mitchell and Beahn, who was sent left on the chart with a 5-2 defeat by Dukich. Beahn started off the match by winning the first game of 9-ball. That would be the last time she saw daylight, as Mitchell delivered her a 5-1 blow. Beahn ended up with 3rd place and $150. Dukich was sitting in the hot seat waiting for Mitchell. The match started with 9-ball. The first game went back and forth with Dukich prevailing. In the second game, Dukich broke, made nothing, Mitchell missed the 1, and Dukich ran out. Game three featured easy shots missed by both players, with Mitchell winning the game. Mitchell now needed to win five games before Dukich won three. Games four and five again went back and forth, but Mitchell missed the 9-ball each time and Dukich won both, reaching the hill. She broke, made a ball and missed the 1. Following safety play and two more innings, Mitchell ran out from the 3. The score was now 4-2 Dukich, and the game changed to 8-ball. The players traded misses. Then, when it looked like Mitchell would win the game, she scratched on the ball before the 8, leaving Dukich with one ball and the 8-ball to pocket for the win and the match. Dukich was thrilled with her win, taking home $325 for 1st place. Mitchell’s runner- up finish earned her $225. Thanks to Charlie, owner of Stix Billiards, and his staff members, for providing a great location for the tournament. Thanks also to our sponsors, including Tiger Products, Lucasi Hybrid, Sterling Gaming, Ozone Billiards, Ray Martin, Nick Varner, Strokeitwear.com, Robertson Billiard Supplies, Tweeten Fiber, Billiard Scoop, and Sports Rock, for making it possible for BAAT to give gifts to players, fans, and room owners.

By Allison Fischer of NYCGrind.com On the weekend of September 11-12, the ladies of the JPNEWT Tour headed to Cosmo's Billiards in Scranton, PA. Two players, Megan Smith and tour director Linda Haywood-Shea, stood out among the crowd at this event to go through the winner's bracket undefeated, meeting in the hot seat match. Megan Smith would take wins over Kia Sidbury, Borana Andoni 7-6, and Denise Reeve 7-3. Meanwhile, Linda Haywood-Shea went through Melissa Jenkins 7-5, Judie Wilson, and Briana Miller 7-5. However, Linda would then be sent to the one-loss side 7-5, to wait for the winner of the loser's bracket. After their losses in the final four on the winner's side, Briana Miller and Denise Reeve would meet in the quarterfinal, where Briana would win by a close 7-5 score. Briana then took on Linda Haywood-Shea in the semifinal, but would be shot down 7-1. Linda Shea would then get a second chance at Megan Smith in the finals... and in a true battle, the two players went to double-hill, where Linda avenged her earlier loss, winning the case game to become champion. Congratulations to both players for a hard-fought battle! RESULTS: 1st: $440 2nd: $280 3rd: $195 4th: $125 5th/6th: $75

Young gun Jeremy Sossei opened up with an 8-6 win over Diana Rojas before losing to Tony Robles 8-6. However, Jeremy dug deep to grind back from the one-loss side to eventually meet Tony Robles in the finals for a rematch. Jeremy's road to the finals led him through Zion Zvi 8-6, Mike Miller 8-2, Jerry Tarantola 8-6 and Ginky 8-7.
